Director: Michael Ray

Screenwriter: Michael Ray

Genre: psychological drama

 

 

The rated R drama focuses on a black man in his late 20's living in New York with an obsession for finding love from a white woman, the multiple women in his life, and the dark places he goes to satisfy this need.  "I wanted the audience to physically become ill when they see what he does after all the women in his life leave him. It's not a love story. It's not a happy ending. It's a story about addiction and the lengths someone will go to feed that addiction. Many of the characters we follow in the movie are addicted to something, not just our lead,"-says Ray.

A young woman struggles to overcome a drug addiction to retain custody of her infant daughter.

 

"I had an epiphany for those of us who have been disappointed or hurt by the addicts in our lives that we love.

An addict can't see what is in front of them because they are too busy running from what's behind them.

The addicts we have come across have been blinded by their own pain as well by the substance they have chosen to numb it. It's not our fault they couldn't show up.

We are and were... enough."

Jada Pinkett Smith
